The Egg Walker[note 1][1] (エッグウォーカー[2] Eggu Wōkā?) is an enemy that appears in Sonic Forces. It is a mass-produced, ostrich-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.


Shaped like ostriches, the Egg Walkers have lavender bodies with black pelvises and long black legs. Their legs in particular have red lights where they bend, and their feet each possess two purple toes. In place of wings, they have two-barreled missile launchers. Finally, they have long necks (with a red-lit joint) and flat black heads that only have red eye lenses and a purple fin on top as facial features.


The Egg Walkers can be found stages such as Luminous Forest, Park Avenue, Metropolitan Highway, Null Space and Mortar Canyon.

In gameplay, the Egg Walkers will run away from the playable character when they start getting too close to them. In case the player stops following them or they reach the end of a road however, the Egg Walkers will eventually come to a stop. While running, the Egg Walkers will launch missiles that home in on the playable character behind them. However, in Null Space and Mortar Canyon there are situations where the Egg Walkers will stand in one place instead of running away and fire their missiles at the playable character.

Having no forms of defense, the Egg Walkers are easily destroyed with any form of attack.

Powers and abilities

The Egg Walkers are very fast runners, although they cannot match up speedsters like Sonic or Shadow. They also come equipped with missile launchers that let them fire explosive missiles.
